Spanish term or phrase: PAILEROS
These are the people repairing the steel components. I do not think that "boiler makers" or coppersmith works in this context.

neutral  Sandra Holt: I agree with Margarita, and I think that "Boiler Welder" would be a good choice.
30 mins

agree  Margarita M. Martínez: I think the most important is to use the word boiler. I would not be sure if they are welders, repairers, or what in fact. Don' you agree? They deal with boilers but I am not sure what they do (from the word itself).

  -> Thanks a lot Margarita!

agree  Enrique Espinosa: Paileros, en México, se usa para designar a los soldadores como un oficio definido en la industria (tanques, barcos, construcción, automotriz, metalurgia, etc)

agree  Noni Gilbert: Boiler welder/boiler repairer
